open them up and dry them out for a while, then seal them back up very tight so no places for it to get in

LOL^
Yeah, just remove your headlights and run a bead of silicone around the seam.
Also, check to make sure the covers are secure on the back of the headlamps.

X2. If they have ever had the rear covers off for a bulb change, they may have not been put back properly.
Are these OEM, unmodified units?

Oh, well there you go, then. You will not be able to get rid of condensation with a design like that.
